Pantheon Pantheon, one of the engineering marvels of Ancient Rome, was built in dedication to all Roman gods. The name “Pantheon” carries the meaning of "All Gods” in Greek. It was widely believed that the temple was first designed by Marcus Agrippa in 118CE, and later refined under the supervision of Emperor Hadrian in 125CE.
